US Quidditch Cup 11 At Large Bid Interest Form

The US Quidditch Cup 11 at large bid interest form is now available.

As announced in the US Quidditch Cup 11 bid allocation article, Teams will qualify through either one of the eight regional championships or the at large bid process. US Quidditch Cup 11 will take place on April 14th and 15th, 2017 in Round Rock, Texas.

The at large bid interest form is now available here.

Teams who complete the at large bid interest form will be regularly added to the USQC11 at large bids tracking sheet on the team events registration spreadsheet. Teams progress towards gameplay requirements will be updated on that sheet.

USQC11 At Large Process

Both the collegiate and community divisions will have at large bids.  At large bids will be awarded directly to teams based on the USQ standings as of 11:59pm ET on Sunday, March 11, 2018.

Upon confirmation of the standings, the top 16 eligible college teams and the top 11 eligible community teams in the USQ standings will be offered bids to US Quidditch Cup 11.

In order to be eligible for an at large bid, teams must meet the following requirements:

  1. The team must compete at a regional championship this season.

  2. The team must have not earned a bid at that regional championship.

  3. The team must not have been disqualified from that regional championship in any way.

  4. The team must fill out the at large bid interest form by March 9, 2018 committing to accepting an at large bid if they receive one. 

  5. The team must have completed one of the following two expanded season play requirements by 11:59pm ET on Sunday, March 11, 2018.  The expanded season play requirements can be met against teams from either division, and, as usual, games at regionals do not count for the expanded season play requirements.

    1. The team must have played 12 games against 8 opponents at 3 events.

    2. The team must have played 8 games against 4 teams at 3 events, including at least one out of region opponent from each of two additional regions which qualified at their own regionals.*

* If a team transferred regions, they will be treated as a team from the region into which they transferred.
